Constant Metamorphosis – Independent Animated Shorts By Women

Nippon Animation   ³ 

This year’s selection of animated shorts celebrates the careers of four independent women animators. Makiko SUKIKARA, Yoko YUKI, Lisa FUKAYA, and Sarina NIHEI each have their own unique aesthetic, which in all cases is quite different from the style popularized by mainstream Japanese animation. This program, curated by Dr. Catherine Munroe Hotes, gives manifold insights into a Japanese animation community that is actively engaged with the international animation scene.
